I watched San Andreas the other day in theaters, movie is better than what I expected. Then again I had low expectations and thought it would be worse than 2012. It's alright.

I thoroughly enjoyed that movie, to me it is gripping and intense.

just got back watching the George Clooney starring Tomorrowland.
Horrible movie. Sincere advice- don't waste your time and money on this.

Hello guys! Been here in Teambhp for so long and i am not sure how i missed this thread!

Been waiting for months and months for Jurassic World and now its finally almost here.I have been pretty much following every scrap off info on IMDB message boards and elsewhere and initial reactions seem to be lukewarm at best with a cliched storyline.Eitherways should be catching it on Sunday here.The movie is out in France and Belgium on 10th itself.

Cant wait!

Also a couple of other movies which i got around to watching recently,

Quote:
Ridley Scott's cult classic the Blade Runner 9/10
Coen Brother's Fargo and The Big Lebowski.

Fargo was a solid 8.5/10

But i felt,after hearing about the Big Lebowski for years,it was very underwhelming.6/10.

Watched Entourage the past week. For fans of the series it feels like a longer length episode. The story is decent and the acting by some characters are good! For you car lovers there is a beautiful cadillac convertible!

I would rate it 3/5

Jurassic World !

It is everything you expect ! [and you might be disappointed if you look for a distinct divergent plot]

We create them .... We {try to}own them ..they break free ...Chaos theory ...run run run! !
The typical formula of our pretty Dino movies but Children would love it just like I did, back in those days , where I grew up watching these Jurassic Creatures come into action!

Jurassic World 3D

Went with low expectations and the movie exceeded that.
It's the same expected storyline but i really loved the graphics and flawless execution. Anyone who is interested in these creatures would love the movie.
Though the storyline is cliched, that's the only way the story can be told.

Watched it on the new screen at Ariesplex (SL Theatre complex), Trivandrum. Amazing screen and with the new Dolby Atmos sound technology, I was blown away. Amazing intro videos at this theatre demonstrating the Atmos. The first 10-15 mins intro before the movie itself makes you think "Paisa Vasool". :-D

Ticket price: 250/- for normal seats and 460/- for the back seats.

I completely agree with this. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Bryce Howard acts well in her role. Waiting for the next installment (There were indications of that in the movie).

Upcoming "To Watch" List:
1. Inside Out
2. Terminator Genisys
3. Minions
4. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
5. Pixels

Watched "SPY" today - Super good fultu timepass movie. You can call it as a satire on all the serious Spy movies (read "James Bond" movies). Though the movie belonged to Melissa McCarthy (and she is totally cool in the movie and her mouth was much sober compared to usual), the movie is a must-watch just for Jason Statham. Jason is my favourite action hero but in this movie he shows us his comic side - and what a great performance he gave - totally hillarious. Don't miss his awesome monologues if you decide to see the movie. He totally stole the movie.

Jurassic World: 6/10

Old old, really old wine, in a not so new bottle. Oh, and the thing with the velociraptors? What kind of paint thinner was the script writer sniffing! Will not say anymore. To us it seemed like a movie dreamed of by a kid, and made for kids! Just about a one time watch.

Spy: 8/10

Went into this movie not expecting anything at all. Of late, it's become common place for the trailer of a movie to look better than the movie itself. But this one was really as funny as the trailer. Melissa McCarthy is genuinely funny, and nearly every other character in this movie was a hoot! Definitely recommended for folks who just wanna have a laugh.

Jurassic World 4 (May be 5) /10

I was kinda bored in the first half actually. I think Hollywood should stop defiling the 'Jurassic' brand now. Even after 10-12 years, this movie' story is no different. Nice park, people enjoying, some silly mistake, Dinos on the run and boom ! Invariably, everyone tends to compare any dino movie with the first masterpiece of a movie. It just proves how much world of difference it makes to have one of the greatest directors of all time.

Dont waste your money in theatres. Wait for the Grand TV Premier.

If you can, watch this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Tales_%28film%29

Very funny. Although in Spanish, but one can relate and really enjoyable.
Cannes award= boring, but it was only nominated for Palme d'Or and so not boring at all. Also nominated for Oscar Best Foreign Language Film.

Killing Jesus:
Well, its about THAT. Follows more or less the same lines as it stands, but interesting focus on the early part of his life.
No point in talking about the plot, but the production, though it looks expensive, at times is let down by the dialogues and delivery by sound a little high schoolish.

3.5/5

FF7:

Very late to the party, yeah?
Loved it!!
Loved that it was So long, SO confusing, and SOOOO harebrained!!
I think, owing to Paul walker, they decided to go all out with their money, and then decided to go all out with everybody else's money as well!! If you look closely, youll notice that the whole cast looks a little bankrupt by the end.
I've NEVER had any expectations from an FF movie, and this one scores excellently even on zero! Full fun, popcorn chomping, coke inhaling fun! Even at home.
Having said that, its fair to cause a bit of lumpen throat at the end, yeah?

5/5

Default The English Movies Thread (No Spoilers Please)

Saw Jurassic World on a weekday night show and first time ever I am seeing a theater in a not so popular area of the city house full.
Coming to the movie, I was disappointed with the story line, extremely poor acting and lack of any real fear/suspense moments. Seriously wonder the 1B story...
